Pregnancy issues

My wife experienced two missed abortions in last two years. Now she is pregnant(13 weeks). First Doctor suggested to take Hibor 2500 IU every day as soon as pregnancy is detected and taking Hibor2500(low molecular weight heparin) every day from last two months. The 13th week scan shows baby growth is very good. We consulted another doctor to whether to take Hibor 2500 injection daily or not. The second doctor suggested to stop Hibor and to take Ecosprin 75 mg tab daily. Which one(Hibor 2500 or Ecosprin 75 mg) is safe?.

Both are anticoagulants. Aspirin is the best medicine and is save our life. Any drug prolonged use may cause some sort of side effect. And during labor it may cause for excessive bleeding. So that it's a sincere advise to keep in touch with your regular doctor.

Pediatrician Dr. Sumitra Kumar Mukherjee's  Response
It has been found some women suffers from anti phospholipoid syndrome during pregnancy. In this condition there is a tendency of the body to form clots. As a result tiny blood vessels in placeta will be blocked which will cut the blood supply of the baby leading to miscarrage. Both Heparin and baby Aspirin 75mgm are used. they should be used in first three months of pregnancy and should be discontinued after that due to problem with bleeding.I thnk Heparin is OK
